They say Kelowna is the Califonia of British Columbia.
Lots of growing up was done here even though it was just a four hour drive from my hometown, Vancouver, BC.
Being away from home is being away from home and what I learned not in the tuition I paid or books I read is beyond valuable: independence
I grew up timid and quiet but loud with people I know. I thought I’ve changed over the years but reality is I’m still the same as I was. I feel bad that I suck at hanging out in groups because I emit such an anti-social and loner vibe. I just hate speaking up in groups and I don’t always understand or have interest in the topics they are chatting about.
I’ve come to accept who I am because BE. YOU. TIFUL., right?
My communication skills appear to go hand in hand with how I am in groups. Over the years, my written communication has increasingly become better compared to my verbal. When it boils down to it, people with the verbal skills beat ones with the written skills and expensive educational background (apparently written communication is very passive aggressive).
How to step out of comfort zone when it’s so uncomfortable?
